ASSIGNMENT: Bookmark - THEME: Joy of Reading
I had a 'kit' with book circulation cards, date stamp, book pockets, etc. I used one of the circulation cards and stamped a range of dates down the left side. I hand wrote an author, title, and 'signed' funny names that had 'checked out' the book. I used old paper distress ink to shade it and a distress tool to rough up the edges. I colored a suitcase image (from the stamp catalog) and glued that to the front and mounted the whole thing to patterned cardstock.
The top corners were rounded with a punch and I used a small hole punch in the center to thread with a thin ribbon.
